Local Elective Politics

Course Number: 
GAFL 715

This course explores how people get elected to public offices in city
government. Success in getting elected may depend as much upon political
institutions, processes, and people as upon the issues, interests and values
that appear to be at stake. This course studies both, with special attention
to a set of congressional and local government contests in the Philadelphia
area. We will focus on the tools needed to run for a big city office in the
21st century, and feature guest appearances from media consultants, press
secretaries, pollsters, and other political professionals to help you learn
how to use these campaign tools properly.
